Lawrence Velvel, the Dean of the Massachusetts School of Law, points out in poetry that Hillary, almost all the other pols, and the mass media are misleading the American people by pretending that a cut off of funds for the Iraq war means that money could not be used to protect the troops during withdrawal. To the contrary -- a bill cutting off funds for the war could provide that funds nonetheless can be used for the purpose of protecting troops during withdrawal.

Here is a poem quick
About another move putatively slick
The woman of two faces
Who now before us places
A bill to repeal the war’s authorization
As a means to require its cessation;
Knowing the bill would be vetoed,
Knowing this could not be overrode
Because the needed two-thirds is lacking.
Since peace in this country has insufficient backing;
Knowing her bill would mean only more of the same --
More deaths by the thousands in today’s “Great Game”;
Knowing that even if the bill by a true miracle were passed
